This is a picture from our Thanksgiving appetizer table - it clearly demonstrates the smallness of an "appropriate" 1-ounce serving of Chili-Toasted Pecans with Dried Cranberries from a recent Recipe of the Week. Notice the 1-ounce serving size. Even with WLS it is easy to over-eat the appropriate 1-ounce portion.
By the way, one ounce of dry roasted pecans contains 187 calories, 2 grams of protein, 18 grams fat (1 saturated), 6 grams carbohydrate and 2 grams dietary fiber. nuts are rich in monounsaturated fats, the healthy fats. However, a little goes a long way!
It's all about portion control! Make a visual image and honor your body with healthy foods in appropriate portion!
